R&B singer Kehlani recently stepped spoke out on her failed suicide attempt this year and explained the importance of understanding mental disorders.
Footage of Lani’s heartfelt talk at one of her first concerts following the incident has gone viral.
“And please don’t try it. Don’t do it. You know I’m very honest with the people that support me. It wasn’t a first-time thing and that’s not OK. It’s not OK, okay? For anyone. Not the people around you, not the people who love you, not the people who care about you, right? So, I know everyone has access to the suicide prevention number. If not, I’m sure I’m going to be working with them a lot and advocating for that a lot because it’s something so many young people are dealing with and so many people just slip under the rug into depression and severe anxiety and many disorders that people know nothing about. So, you have a friend and they scare you a little, just hug them and love them up and tell them that it’s good. And from me to you, you are worth it, you are perfect, you need to be here every single day that you are meant to be here, get up everyday and know that and tell yourself that. I love you all very much.”
